Donations Drive for Family Wellness Center- All During the Month of October and November
In order to meet the President's call to action, we have decided to hold a donations drive to benefit the Family Wellness Center, supported by the UT Austin School of Nursing. Donations can be sent directly to the Family Wellness Center or given to Dr. Elizabeth Loika at the UT School of Nursing. Per the Family Wellness Center, the following items are needed:
-The diabetes program would like several sets of cheap measuring cups to
demonstrate portion size.
-They also requested several packages of tear-off sheets that are examples
of Carb Counting (web address and item numbers provided)
-They would also like plastic fruits, etc. to show portion sizes, discuss
-Diabetic socks are a great help, especially in the winter
-Dental care packages with floss, toothpaste and a toothbrush are always
-Personal Hygiene kits with shampoo, wipes, etc. are another option
-The big ticket items would be $$ that we could put towards buying blood glucose
testing strips, or Medical Alert bracelets.
